San Jacinto High School took top honors in the Art for Youth competition held by the Diamond Valley Art Center in Hemet on Saturday night.
A piece entitled "Big O", created by junior Stephen Lazarde , topped several dozen other works by students from multiple other high schools in the valley.
This marks the first year that works created for the show were all on display in one location - previously sites around the valley were included on the display list. Works will remain on display at The Diamond Valley Art Center until March 7.
Two other students from SJHS also participated. They are Monnaje Mc Corley and Jason Millhiser.
